To be approved for an apartment at “The School House”, you’ll be expected to make 40 times the monthly rent and go through a credit check.

If your annual salary does not meet that requirement, then it may be possible to combine salaries of roommates/partners or use a guarantor.

“The School House” management requires that a guarantor typically make 80 times the required monthly rent and prefer that they be from the Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT).
